Unveiling the MailerLite Phishing Attack: A Deep Dive into the Crypto Market Breach

The recent phishing attack on email service provider MailerLite has raised significant concerns within the crypto market. The company disclosed to Decrypt that the breach, which occurred when a support team member unwittingly fell victim to a deceptive link and provided their Google credentials, resulted in unauthorized access to MailerLite's internal system. Here are the key points of the incident: Hackers gained access to MailerLite's internal system by executing a password reset for a specific user on the admin panel. They were able to impersonate user accounts, focusing primarily on cryptocurrency-related accounts. A total of 117 accounts were accessed, with some being used to launch phishing campaigns using stolen information. Notable affected accounts included CoinTelegraph, Wallet Connect, Token Terminal, DeFi, and Decrypt. The hackers managed to steal over $580,000, according to ZachXBT, with the funds being sent to a specified address. Web3 security firm Blockai

Polygon Co-founder Jaynti Kanani Steps Back from Day-to-Day Operations: What Does This Mean for the Network?

Co-founder of Ethereum Layer 2 Polygon, Jaynti Kanani, Steps Back from Day-to-Day Operations

In a recent announcement, Jaynti Kanani, co-founder of Polygon, revealed his decision to step back from the day-to-day operations of the network. Kanani, who co-founded Polygon in 2017 alongside Sandeep Nailwal and Anurag Arjun, shared his plans in a post on X (formerly known as Twitter) on Wednesday. While he will no longer be involved in the daily grind, Kanani expressed his commitment to continue contributing to and supporting Polygon from the sidelines.

Sandeep Nailwal, another co-founder of Polygon, responded to Kanani's post with mixed emotions, acknowledging the value of their partnership and expressing a desire for a longer journey together. However, Nailwal also recognized the importance of individuals pursuing new adventures and personal growth.

Polygon Labs, the company behind the network, experienced a shakeup in its executive team back in July. Chief Legal Officer Marc Boiron was promoted to CEO, while President Ryan Wyatt transitioned into an advisory role. These changes reflect the company's commitment to strategic leadership and innovation.

Despite Kanani's departure, the news has had no immediate impact on the native token of the Polygon network, MATIC. The token has remained stable in the $0.55 to $0.58 range since the beginning of the month and currently holds a price of $0.58, reflecting a 3.5% increase in the last 24 hours.

When contacted by CoinDesk, Polygon declined to provide any comments regarding Kanani's departure.
